UKRD Armistice Day

At 11am on Sunday 10th November and Monday 11th November, we remembered those who have sacrificed their lives for their country.

Many people associate Remembrance Day with heroes of D-Day or the Battle of Britain's Spitfire pilots. Some people think of the deeds of the SAS during the Falklands conflict or, of course, Flanders Fields from World War One, carpeted in poppies growing where so many men lost their lives.

But in the last few years, it's also been about the nation showing its support for the soldiers returning injured and traumatised from current conflicts.

An interview with Lance Corporal Andrew Stewart, B Squadron of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards on Afghanistan and Remembrance.
